been active in democratic circles. she was the national director for howard dean's 24 -- 2004 election. she helped to unseat an 18 year republican incumbent. stephanie also managed the campaign of senator frank and i and minnesota. she defeated norm coleman, correct? she is a graduate of c-span.o [indiscernible] university in minnesota. she has a lot to say and then we will field questions from all of you. thank you, stephanie. >> thank you all so much for coming out. good morning. again, my name is stephanie schriock, president of emily's list. as mentioned, i grew up in butte, montana, where my heart and soul still reside. special thanks to the national press club for setting the solemn. it really is an honor for me to be here today. for those of you who do not know as much about emily's list, emily's list has been around for 27 years. we are solely committed to electing pro-choice democratic women to office up and down the ballot across the country. as mentioned, we had a good election cycle in 2012. two years before that, and would save like most folks, i was ready to see the 112th
to get his picks into his cabinet. and coming after losing the presidential election, losing seats in the house and senate, to democrats, the republicans have been looking for a way to ding the president. they were able to ding him by denying him the choice of susan rice, the u.n. ambassador to be the president's next secretary of state. they view going after chuck hagel as being one more notch in this crazy war against the president when a lot of people in the country want congress to focus not so much on chuck hagel as they want them to focus on what's happening with sequester and the budget and debt ceiling and other things that have direct impacts on people's lives. from a policy standpoint, does this come down to bush era neocon, that reminds them that he opposed the war. >> he did oppose the surge. for republicans this is about somebody whom they disagree with on policy and never liked that much in the senate because he wasn't the kind of senator that had a lot of friends, that played the relationship game at a high level. and so it's not like he has solid friendships that ca
's called americans for responsible solutions. they say their goal is to, quote, encourage elected officials to stand up for solutions that will prevent gun violence. it's a new political pressure group, in other words. congresswoman gabby giffords and her husband launched this today in a high profile, well done media blitz. they sat through a moving interview with diane sawyer. they published a joint op ed in usa today where they demanded change from washington. but they also pointed to their own unique role in this fight, not just with the former congresswoman as a victim of gun violence, but with her having been a member of congress who was a staunch supporter of the second amendment. gabby giffords was a very pro-gun rights democratic member of congress. she and her husband are not commie liberal pinkos coming to confiscate yours guns. they are both gun owners themselves. "forget the boogie man of big bad government coming to dispossess you of your firearms. as a western woman and a persian gulf war combat veteran who have exercised our second amendment rights, we do not want to take awa
election because of controversial statements on the israeli reluctance. among the reason for that concern and in some cases outright opposition. seven of the 12 republican members of the armed services committee expressing some opposition with at least three senators already saying they will vote no. senator david fisher saying, i will be a no-vote and on the floor. south carolina senator lindsay gramm calling hegel and antagonistic and in-your-face nomination to all of those who support israel. freshman senator ted crews of texas absolutely unloading while calling him too weak for the job >> it is interesting. the president seems bound and determined to proceed down this path despite the fact that his record is troubling. he has not been a friend, and in my view, the united states should stand unshakeable with the nation of israel, and he is consistently advocating weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran, he has exposed sanctions, and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and a deterrent and, unfortunately, i think weak
of elections, tried to work out something so we can get the accurate information out to your voters. that is the goal of the election officials, get them all the information they need. one of the most significant problems was unusual reports that were inaccurate that had this ripple effect throughout the county that caused huge problems throughout the election. i urge everyone to start working those relationships out now. get out the information. we have less and less and less information for voters, for media, for everyone. build this relationship now. >> ok. >> i want to take all little personal liberty here. i hope when i get back to work i will not be in trouble keeping but i want to talk about how we treat senior citizens. i often think we are not very comfortable. i know we have occurred stop ballot voting. -- curb ballot voting. we have senior citizens coming into the precinct. walking with canes, holding the hands of their children and great-grandchildren. they wanted to participate. some of the captains would get them out of line, bring them to the front of the line. some p
election campaigns, policies matter, as you said. we have enough wealth in this country that there is no reason why anybody in this country should be hungry. there's no reason why anybody in this country should be poor. it is an atrocity that so many children in the united states grow up in poverty. it is totally against the ideas that this country was founded on, that are powerful ideals that resonate with many people. what the occupy movement correctly is picking up on is, the government has not been responsive. it has been part of the problem. it has been creating policies that have made the situation for people worse, and we actually need better policies. we are not technically limited, we are politically limited. >> next question. >> in the interest of gender balance, i offered my spot to the young woman behind me, and she demurs, so here i am. i wish the entirety of this conversation or focused on the democratic party, whether it is and allied of our struggles and interest or not, and what, if anything, might be an alternative to that politically, not just in civil
in a democracy. meaningful democracy cannot exist when moneyed interests can buy elections and lobby of legislation. for example, 2/3 of americans support -- but in a logical fashion in congress is committed to blocking reform in this area. add to this list, concerted efforts to restrict bargaining rights of unions to deprive people of the right to vote and you appreciate the full measure of the democratic crisis we face. fourth and final issue is the challenge of finding a way to manage the economy and provide a good life for everyone. no solution to the problems of climate destruction can be found, the developed world reducing its level of carbon emissions. these four issues and a quality, corruption, inequality, corruption, crisis of democracy, sustainability fuelled the occupy movement. what we tried to do was explore and analyze the origins and see what can be done to bring our institutions to enlightenment. we also wanted to bring these four issues together into a narrative. we chose to route our narrative in american ideals of freedom and equality. to say that the ideas of fre
of elected office have admitted this and we all know that, you know, eventually they're going to go after the middle class and it says, one of the ways they've already decided to do this is going, using the, limiting deductions and in fact, i should add that people earning, couples who earn 130,000 each, individually, fall into this category where they start to lose deductions. this isn't particularly rich, particularly in you live in new york. >> if they're joint filers, over $250,000 threshold and when it begins to phase out. dan. >> paul, the democrats believe this generation of democrats believe that over the last 40 or 50 years the united states made all of these social commitments to the population, social security, medicare, medicaid, now obamacare. >> paul: well, we have. >> and we have. and they think, the conventional wisdom shall the simpson-bowles type argument is, we can't afford this, that out 25 years from now, all of our taxes will be going to pay for these things. the obama democrats believe we made these commitments and we have to find a way to pay for them. they do not
getting tough on hagel. newly-elected senator tammy baldwin, also the first openly gay u.s. senator says she plans on questioning hagel for his anti-gay comments. 14 years ago hagel criticized ambassador james hormel for being aggressively gay. baldwin wants to know if his apology is sufficient and sincere and she wants to see how he's evolved on that issue particularly in the area of don't ask, don't tell. another obama appointment yesterday, he tapped counter terrorism adviser john brennan to lead the c.i.a. much the controversy there has to do with his involvement in the use of armed drones and his views on waterboarding but it is resparking a debate over the white house cyberleaks. president's aides purposely let out some information to help his re-election chances. but some republicans say they won't confirm brennan until the investigations are complete. more bill press is coming up after the break. stay with us.

with the congress about who deleted references to al-qaeda three weeks before the election. i think it was purposefully done and i want to know who did it before we move forward. >> you're committed to holding the nomination up? >> yeah. i don't want to. but i'm not going to let the administration get away from having to be held accountable. the state department, you will hear from hillary clinton. who did change the talking points and take al-qaeda out? what did the president do in seven hours? they are making two movies about the strong leadership and the bin laden raid. this administration leaked every detail about the bin laden raid so the world would know how strong their own national security. when you have a major debacle like benghazi you can't get basic information four months later. i don't think they are pursuing offenders aggressively, frankly. they are stonewalling the congress. john brennanbe nor anyone else should be concerned as the acting director of the c.i.a. until the c.i.a. accounts for their role in changing the talking points. >> bret: director was asked about
not the most easy one. >> the new conservative dominance of policy thinking ended when barack obama was elected president. but today was the day that the obama administration made the single biggest play to define what comes next. what is t next. today, he nominated chuck hagel, in doing, he nominated the first vietnam veteran. >> he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that is something we only do when it is absolutely necessary. my frame of reference, he has said, is geared to the guy at the bottom who is doing the fighting and the dying. with chuck, our troops will always know just like sergeant hagel was there for his own brother, secretary hagel will be there for you. and finally, chuck represents the bipartisan tradition that we need more of in washington. for his independence, and commitment to consensus, he has earned the respect of national security and military leaders, republicans and democrats, including me. >> hagel will be the third republican secretary of defense appointed by the last two democratic presidents. william cohen, and bob ga
. on election he is feeling good about himself and feeling like there can be no opposition to his position and so it doesn't seem, he doesn't seem terribly concerned there is not a lot of concern for chuck hagel. >> another nomination will be for treasury secretary as well. perhaps jack lu who is currently the chief of staff at white house is the leading candidate. how would you vote on lu? >> i would have to look at his record and listen to what he has to say. i will tell you my view on any treasury secretary would be that i would want to hear some real proposals for growth. and this whole debate about the fiscal cliff we have been talking about taxes and talking about spending. noticeably absent from the equation has been growth. and the biggest economic problem of the last four years has been the dismal economic growth. under barack obama our economy has grown 1.5% a year for four years. less than half the historical -- >> this gets no the whole idea of retooling the republican party under the heading of opportunity conservativism which i would like to get into in just a second. do you
election. it had been one of the hardest fought campaigns in recent memory. texas governor versus the vice-president and when the election results came in the vice-president won the popular vote because florida was too close to call, it went into equivalent of overtime, remember the pregnant, hanging and dip pelled chads and after challenges to the supreme court, 5-4 to halt the recall in florida and bush took florida getting the 25 needed electoral votes and he took the oath of office and lawmakers recognizing george w. bush 12 years ago. and is his parents' 68th wedding anniversary, they're now the longest married presidential couple in history. they met at a christmas dance in connecticut in 1941, married four years later and mr. bush, wearing his officer's uniform. he was 21 and on leave from active duty in world war ii as a navy pilot. mrs. bush was 20 and her groom was the first boy she'd ever kissed. president bush is still in a houston hospital for related cough and he's in a regular that's the news for today. huckabee is next. >>> tonight on huckabee the president and democrats go
election. they're coming off a fiscal debate at the end of the year where they feel like they didn't get anything out of it because they didn't get the spending cuts they want. they have these two things coming up in terms of the budget negotiations. and you have these automatic spending cuts that are set to go into effect at the end of february. they feel like the debt ceiling is going to be... is their leverage. they managed to usity fek tively in 2011 although if you're an economist you would say it wasn't effective and it ended up hurting the economy. politically they felt a little like they had gained some of the things that they want even though ultimately it did have a negative effect on the party. this whole battle is just going to really heat up in the next few weeks. >> woodruff: speaking of the politics of this, jake, the president did say today if this happens he thinks both parties would be blamed but in fact in the polls are showing that it appears most people would blame republicans if this happened. is that... how much is that even a factor among... in the thinking of rep
elected representatives although i consider myself neither a republican or democrat i look forward to working closely on both sides of the aisle. most importantly, my wife cathy to my children kyle, to my parents in new jersey, a shout out. owen who is 92. i can not be where i am today without their love, patience, understanding, and support. there's no way i can ever repay them except to say i will need it for a little bit longer. i am deeply grateful for this opportunity. it will be bittersweet to leave all of my close colleagues and friends here at the white house and that the national security staff but come to work with in respect so deeply. if confirmed by the senate i will consider it to be an honor of my life. >> these are four outstanding individuals. we are grateful to all of them. i want in particular to think mike morrell and leon panetta for their extraordinary service. i just want to repeat i hope the senate will act on these confirmations promptly. when it comes to security we do not bite to leave a lot of gaps between the time one set of leaders transitions out of a
from the biggest spender, paying about $19 million in the last election. it did not get much for its money. the nra has less than 1% success rate getting its people in or out of congress. the power comes from the membership, which the group says has grown by 100,000 people in just the last few weeks. people like chris schneider. >> this is a semiautomatic rifle, which has been portrayed in the media as evil, which it is not. i use it to hunt coyote and small game. >> congress will likely hear from people like him. those on the other side of the issue have far less to spend. >> gun control groups i would say used to be more of a force to be reckoned with. good they have been neutered on some level over the last 10 or 20 years. but joe biden says he will make his recommendations to the president on tuesday. we expect president obama will make his case to the american public not long after that. >> the un security council is holding emergency talks on the crisis in mali. 30 soldiers have been killed after a bottle with rebels in the north of the country. fighters have to push the rebels
that president car are sooi stole the last election. just have a listen. >> correctly seen as illegitimate as many afghans and by people around the world. he runs a corrupt regime. his vice president according to these documents had $53 million in cash going to dubai. there is no legitimate explanation for the vice president of a country running off with $53 million. another of these documents appointments out that his half brother is involved in the drug trade. and then there are of course the accounts of karzai himself as being emotional, unstable, suggestions that he uses drugs. >> a lot of allegations there, but i think to the point is whether president karzai can be trusted in a way to run his own country or is he the only game in town, and regardless of troop numbers, there will be billions of dollars needed to run the army that is now being built up by the u.s. and nato. >> that's right. at the nato conference, they pledged to at least ten years of providing beginning $4.1 billion a year, $2.5 billion of that coming from the u.s. but i think it's important for us to recognize as we
losing the election to president obama. conservative base of the republican party is not happy with this initial deal on the fiscal cliff. so they're looking for republicans to plant flags. now taxes and spending has nothing to do with chuck hagel except for gloria's point about a downsizing at the pentagon. chuck hagel has been on the record saying it's too bloated. while it's not connected to some of the other games of political chess in washington, in some ways everything is connected. >> the white house makes the calculation that if republicans are going to oppose chuck hagel because he ended up being opposed to the war in iraq, that's a fight the white house is happy to have. more than half of the public is opposed -- was opposed to the war in iraq, too, in the end. this is something that they feel they can do. they wouldn't have nominated him, wolf, if they didn't think he would get confirm but it's a political fight that they shouldn't shy away from. >> i'll bring jim acosta in this conversation in a moment. brianna keilar is standing over at the white house. john, despi
election which republicans took control of the congress. and democrats are still spooked by the fact that in a lot of red and purple districts, wolf, they lost because of the crime bill. you remember the crime bill with bill clinton, included in the crime bill was the ban on assault weapons. and so for the last two decades, the democrats have been very reluctant to touch this issue because they know it's going to hurt them, particularly with gun owners who can be very intense and very motivated to come out to vote in midterm elections in particular which we're heading into. >> but public opinion may be evolving now. i'll put up on the screen, a recent poll that we took after the newtown, connecticut massacre. restrictions on guns, 13% say there should be no restricts. 70% say there should be some restrictions. 15% said make all guns illegal. 70% some restrictions which presumably is what the president is going to be calling for seems to suggest this is the time to do something. >> it does. you look at the aggregate numbers. if you're a politician you say, that's great. let's change t
obama is an elected president by the american people. and he grants the will of the american people by working for the interests of the american people and this is the american people's right in their president. i respect him and i value him. he played an effective and important role in the cease-fire in regard s to gaza. he cooperated with us in a big way. i'm still in constant communication with him. when we meet, there will be a chance to talk about cooperation in different areas like scientific research, manufacturing and production, investments and tourism. >> so you plan on coming to the united states, god willing, in the first quarter of this year, between now and the end of march? >> translator: before the end of the first quarter, god willing, i will visit, as you said i will visit, the united states of america, and i will be happy with this visit. >> i asked the egyptian president about the blind egyptian cleric who was convicted here in the united states in connection with the 1993 world trade center bombing. omar abdel-rahman is serving a life sentence in a u.s. prison.
. this is not the normal way forward. this represents a broken system. >> if we quit thinking about the next election and start thinking about the next generation, we're going to make it through our lives just fine. it's what we're living behind. and they're going to have to come together sooner or later. >> there you heard it. it's the short term thinking creating potentially huge long-term costs for the american economy. >> the down grading of the u.s. economy was a huge problem. of course, it hasn't yet resulted in higher interest rates. a lot of people might say, look, who cares? let's be complacent. let's not worry about another downgrade. who cares? do people get it, in washington, that's it's important? >> it almost seems to be an afterthought in all of the chest thumping and bargaining, no one is thinking about it because the short-term impact of a default would be extraordinary. maybe we shouldn't call this the debt ceiling at all. maybe we should change it the do downgrade ceiling because this game of chicken is sick. >> sometimes semantics can make all the difference. >> "outfront" next, a
with the appropriate elected representatives of the american people. although i consider myself neither a republican nor a democrat, i very much look forward to working closely with those on both sides of the aisle. finally and most importantly, to my wife cathy and to my children kyle, jacquelin, kelly, to my parents in new jersey, a shout-out. [ laughter ] >> owen is 92, and my mom, dorothy, is 91, my brother tom and my sister cathleen, and my jersey roots, i could not where i am today without their love, their patience, their understanding, and their support. there is no way i can ever repay that except to say i think i'm going to need it for a little bit longer. [ laughter ] >> so, again, mr. president, i am deeply grateful for this opportunity. it will be bittersweet to leave all of my close colleagues and friends here at the white house and at the national security staff who i have come to work with and respect so deeply over the last for you years. but if confirmed by the senate, i will consider it to be the honor of my life to serve as the 21st director of the central intelligence agency. >>
of the obama administration, president obama was elected, there were doubts about his national security experience. it was quite natural for him to pick then senator clinton to be secretary of state and keep bob gates on as secretary of defense. i think he thinks in the second term, he is not running for reelection. he has had experience, so he is much more inclined to pick somebody who is comfortable with, which is senator chuck hagel and senator john kerry. they got along in the senate, so presumably there will get along in the administration. i would add that i do think that one has to ask why, for example, the president is willing to make a flight out of the nomination? i do think the fundamental reason is that secretary chuck hagel --senator chuck hagel would agree, i think both he and the president are in lock step. one of the things that should be done in the hearings for the nomination is the did more about where this administration is going when it thinks about american power and leadership. it is finding good to talk about the limits of power. everybody's to understand. then i
thought you were going to say great. >> have you been to disneyland? [ laughter ] we are still elected officials. we are there to represent the people. when you get there, people start treating you like you are somebody. all of a sudden, you are supposed to be an expert. i run a lot of cattle and i am really good at that. on everything else, they expect you to be an expert. they call you congressman every time you walk into a place. you asked for a cup of coffee in three people try to hand it to you. i think that is where we lose reality. we are there to hold the government accountable. we are not up there to be treated as something special. you loose touch of reality real quick. melissa: you said that you swore you would not serve more than six years of office. >> yes. melissa: you run your company families plumber company. >> when my wife and i took over this plumbing company, we had over $5000 of debt. to me, i was 20 years old and we only had six employees at the time. it took us three years working around-the-clock to get us out of debt. just because we are dealing with 500,000 no
against him, up for re-election and in a towering position and said in an interview if he decided to run for president this time he'd be a lot more ready to run than in 2012 if he took a pass. in a lot more formidable place in terms of the party. >> that's what i was going to say in terms of being a potential real candidate. i would assume there are high level republicans talking to him, courting him, trying to make it happen. they certainly did last time around. these numbers help in a big way, chuck. >> he's taken it one step at a time, getting the governorship, getting re-elected matters a lot to him. he's obviously on track to do that. he's the favorite of a lot of republican money, especially in this city in the tri-state region. he will go into an intensely competitive primary which is important. what the party looks like two years from now is still pretty much up for grabs. there are a lot of different factions within the party. his appeal could be crossover. there's a lot of people in the tea party factions who were attracted to him in 2012. whether he will continue to be that ca
a challenging election cycle for democrats who will be defending a see not only in conservative west virginia, but in republican leaning states like arkansas, alaska, louisiana, and montana. this item was covered by "the wall street journal." regarding climate change, we are going to have a discussion of in 5-10 minutes talking with david doniger and myron ebell. that is coming up later in this edition of "to the washington journal." back to our conversation, karen is in louisiana on the line for independents and also served in the air force. what did you do enter the air force? caller: 1 was in a partnership education program to teach the afghanis how to maintain their facilities once we evacuate the area. i did that in a few locations. i also serve to do oversight construction projects. pretty big roles. i had a chance to do some face to face with the afghans. as a woman a military member, i did see a change in culture from previous deployments. i see if we are going to change the mind set completely, it will require a number of years. it will require generations of us being over there. and
generations. -- no longer exist for future generations. >> the republican response, the newly elected member of the 113 congress. some of you are already weighing in on our face of page -- facebook page. -- from our twitter page, there is this from jim -- it is not the second amendment, it is the 14th amendment. democrats urging obama to bypass the republicans on the debt. one option for congressional democrats would involve the president invoking the 14th amendment of the constitution to declare congressional action unnecessary for raising the limit. let's read you just a portion of what the amendment states. " the validity of the public debt of the united states, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned." that is part of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think yo
on intelligence matters with the appropriate elected representatives of the american people. i consider myself neither a republican or democrat i forward to working with both closely. to my wife, kathy and children kyle, jacqueline and kelly and my parents in new jersey. a shout out. my brother, tom. i couldn't be here without their love, understanding, patience and support and there is no way i can repay that but to say i think i will need it for a little bit longer. mr. president, i am deeply grateful for this opportunity. it will be bittersweet to leave my close colleagues and friends here at the white house. but to work with and respect so deeply over the last few years. if confirmed by the senate i would consider it to be the honor of my life. >> these are four outstanding individuals. we are grateful to all of them. i want in particular to thank mike morel and leon for their extraordinary service. i just want to repeat that the senate will act on these confirmations promptly. when it comes to national security we don't like to leave a lot of gaps between the time that one set of leaders
, but he's not been an easy person to work with. and it strikes me with an election coming up, we should be on the lookout to be working with other actors in afghanistan. >>brian: exactly. you say leaving without losing. in afghanistan, for example, we're debating about money and force strength after 2014. we should we be focused on? >> i think what we should be focusing on is continuing an arms relationship with afghanistan, continuing to provide advisorses. in other words, give them the tools to fight the taliban. i think that in fact they're going to be motivated, partly because the taliban are going to behave so badly like they did before that we will find afghans win to fight them. it might not necessarily be president karzai, but there will be afghan actors who will fight the taliban. >>brian: you say one of the things the soviets did wrong, the soviet union collapsed, gorbachev takes over, and the reason why what the afghans left collapsed is because the soviets cut them off. >> gorbachev continued to arm them. it was yeltsin. as soon as yeltsin took over at our behest, he took ov
house boys club. white boys club. after being propelled to a re-election with the help of women and minority voters, the nation's first black president appears to be stacking his second term cabinet with white men. the president's choice for treasury secretary is expected to be jack lee. that's after nominating john kerry for state, chuck hagel for defense and john brennan for cia chief. obviously as you can see, they are all white men. with hillary clinton exiting the state department and lisa jackson stepping down as head of the epa, the obama administration's at a net loss when it comes to women and minorities in the cabinet. "outfront" tonight, roland martin, rosa brooks, and reihan salam. rosa, let me start with you. this is a president who campaigned aggressively on women's reproductive rights and equal pay for equal work. it was a big part of his campaign. he won the women's vote by double digits over mitt romney. should the president be asking for something that he mocked, i.e., binders of women? >> i'm tempted to send him a few binders. i know a lot of fantastic women.
the nation's spies. what john brennan's election would mean for the so-called kill list. >>> plus, as james holmes appears in court, a warning to the families of the aurora movie theater shooting. be prepared. it's about to get graphic. >>> and his clients include katie holmes, cameron diaz, nicole richie, and you. now a fashion icon is missing after his plane suddenly disappears. >>> hi, everyone. i'm brooke baldwin. good to be with you on this monday. i promise we'll get you much more on the president's national security choices in just a moment. but first, really a gut wrenching scene unfolding right now in a colorado courtroom. prosecutors are laying out some of the gruesome details of last summer's mass shooting inside an aurora, colorado, movie theater. alleged gunman james holmes is not expected to enter a plea today. he's charged with murder, attempted murder, weapons violations, 166 counts in total here. this preliminary hearing they say should last multiple days. you remember this story. 12 people were killed, at least 58 were wounded, 22-year-old steven barton was one of them. he
successful in getting democratic senators who for instance are a lot of them up for re-election in 2014 in red states, in pro-gown states. and so, you know, they look at voters. forget about the nra. they look at their voters who don't want to see tough new gun controls and tough new limits on the kind of guns they can buy. are they going to differentiate the kind of gun they can buy and the kind of magazine they can buy? will they differentiate buying the gun but in all cases going through a background check? that is whether we'll see the administration can get some of this through the congress. martha: we'll all learn what a universal background check would really entail. sounds like that is something they feel they might be able to get through. it is interesting to me, chris, they are saying they will have this commission sort of roll out in terms of what the white house wants on tuesday. they're finishing discussions today. they will speak with media leaders, about that element of all of this but you know, does that indicate, they have already kind of got their plans set and they're
